sea shepherd controversy

going back to the topic I blogged about a few days ago – namely the battle in the Ross sea, between Japanese whalers and the Sea Shepherd ship Steve Irwin.

There are two videos doing the rounds of the same incident – namely the ‘ramming’ accidental or otherwise of a Japanese whaler by the Steve Irwin.

This is the incident from the pov of the Steve Iriwn and its crew.

And this is the same incident from the pov of the Japanese.

The whole thing is very ugly.  One thing is for sure – the Japanese should be stopped from killing whales, although violence should not be used to do so.  Kevin Rudd and Pete Garrett should have dealt with the issue through legal channels, their failure to do so has led to this debarcle.  I am disappointed.
